Brian Holmes

Individual – Chicago, USA & Paris, France

Brian Holmes is an art critic, cultural theorist and activist primarily interested in the intersections of art and political practice. His critical writings are especially useful for architects as a way into contemporary theory and art practices that critique the neo-liberal state and for introducing radical political concepts to a profession that lags far behind art practice in its engagement with issues of social and environmental justice, politics and the wide ranging consequences of 'globalisation'. His writings challenge the architecture profession's self proclaimed neutrality.
